Lake Whitney Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- 2/18/12
4.5lb bass caught in the rain 10-15ft on brush piles with jigs. Took around 15lb on the local tournament today also. Budlight tomorrow goods luck! My estimate is that it will take 18lbs plus to take FIRST and 15lb might get a check! Going to be a good day to fish.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
74 degrees in in the largemouth bass prime water temperature range and fishing should be good right now. Baitfish are much more active in this water temperature and the largemouth bass will be feeding aggressively throughout the day. This is a great time of year to be on the water.

Lake Whitney Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- The lake has a very very low chance of producing a smallmouth bass. Reason being they restock the lake at the wrong time period like when the stripers are crusing shallows?! Makes since plus they are scared of the "Golden Alge". Wish they would get over it and restock the smallmouth everyear so Lake Whitney can become a great smallmouth lake in the future like it was many years ago. They have been caught but in extreamly few numbers over the last few years. Be nice if the restocking group would get together and make the lake more than a small time striper lake.
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Smallmouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at this water temperature. Bass will typically start moving much slower and feeding less aggressive until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, get out fishing early and late and cast in the shallows. When the sun is up it will be time to get out into deeper water, try fishing some drop offs and deep channel bends.

Lake Whitney Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Crappie is a little slow right now due to the recent cold weather, still caught several with a
Crappie pole vertical fishing with live minnows, fishing should heat back up when the water temp
gets back to 68 or 70. Good luck out there.
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie prefer this water temperature and will be actively feeding and staying in solid patterns. Baitfish are more active and schooling in all parts of the lake in this water temperature.

Lake Whitney White Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Sandbass in full swing heading up the creeks especialy on the sunny warmer days. This is early for the lake but it also just came up in the neighborhood of 8ft. so with that and few good days of warm weather and the started. Slowed a bit for the cool front but just wait for a few warm days ahead. Lures Always flyrods, small jerkbaits "rebel" hint cheap and work, tiny rattle traps,small popper, and crappie style jig and baits that imitate small baitfish work also. crankbaits can work but when the water gets realy clear they tend to shy from them in the river.

Found a few stripers up shallow today busting on the top and bringing them in on just about anything you can get infront of there faces quickly. Last three days caught from 3-7lb stripers this way, calmer days make it easier to spot them pop the top.

Lake Whitney Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
